1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.
[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.
[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.
The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.

Yeah, mine did the same thing.
I looked around and it turns out that this problem is pretty close to same thing as the red ring of death, so in theory, to fix this problem you can do the samething as you would do for any RROD.
Last night I did the towel trick and fortunatley it worked for about an hour, than the tv screen went fuzzy and then black. I tried towel trick again for the ful 20 minutes and it seems to be working.
Hope this helps anyone, and wish me luck that my xbox holds out untill I get enough money to buy a new one or a PS3.

You need to get a special scart lead which you can connect your red, white and yellow leads to then connect the scart lead to your tv it should work then
